The post of Angers
The heat stroke on the Lopes cages! While the Angevins were silent from the start of the match, Perreira Lage came close to surprising the Lyonnais.

After an aerial duel between Ndombélé and Bahoken, the former suffers in the back. The former Tottenham midfielder is finally on his feet.

Thiago Mendes tries his chance on the loin
The former Lille midfielder worries the Angers defense for the first time after a long shot deflected by the SCO rearguard.

Large Fulgini sole

First big duels
At the start of the match, Lyonnais and Angevins engaged in great duels in midfield.
Groupama stadium far from full
Many empty seats are visible in the stands of Groupama Stadium which may sound empty this afternoon. Especially since the ultras of Lyon, unhappy with the situation of the club, will give encouragement during the first half.
